How to Increase or Decrease Grad PLUS Loan Amount

Increase your Graduate PLUS Loan

For the same Loan Period

To increase a loan application for the same loan period, you can submit a new application or select the option to "Change the application."

If you choose to change the application:

  1. Include the Reference Number of the application that you wish to modify.
  2. Enter the new total that you want to request not the additional amount you are requesting as this will result in the application entering LionPath as a decrease.

To increase a loan application for a different loan period: select the "New application option;" you cannot make a change to the original application.

If you want to decrease the amount of your PLUS Loan, sign in to Studentloans.gov and request the new (total) amount on your original application—do not submit the amount you wish to decrease.
